Elbow backshells save up to 20% in weight savings
TE CONNECTIVITY TXR Tinel ring swept elbow backshells for screened cables improve efficiency in a wide range of military and aerospace applications. Devices offer designers the potential for up to 20% weight savings over traditional backshells. Devices provide constant internal radius and a smooth internal bore using investment casting. Units are designed to allow for uncoupling during repairs, which helps reduce damage to the boot, resulting in a simple and fast termination option. Products suit a wide range of circular connectors and they are available in multiple shell sizes and plating configurations. Those include MIL-DTL-38999 series III and IV as well as MIL-DTL-26482 series II. TXR40 series also meets AS85049 category 3B sealing requirements.
